Growing innovations will aid the market growth.
Many of the leading automotive industry giants have been developing advanced crankshaft solutions using new-age technologies and materials. In March 2020, for instance, Honda created a 3D printed automotive crankshaft made from metal, designed to reduce the final weight of the vehicle as well as improve its fuel efficiency. The company aims at scaling up the production of its novel offering in the next few years. In February 2021, BMW introduced its fast-performance cars, the M3 and M4, equipped with its naturally-aspirated engines. The core of these engines is the crankshaft forged from chrome molybdenum heat-treated steel, with its crankpins attached spherically to allow the bearings to move more smoothly. These innovations are playing an instrumental role in brightening the prospects of this market in the forecast period 2021-2026.
Growing demand for electric vehicles with the ongoing developments in automotive sector and support in terms of subsidies and grants, tax rebates will hamper the market growth in the forecast period. Major manufacturers such as General Motors, Toyota, and BMW plan to release a potential of 400 models and estimated global sales of 25 million by 2025. In 2021, Ford Motor has committed to increase its investments in electric vehicles to $30 billion by 2025, up from a previous spend of $22 billion by 2023. Similarly, in 2020, Volkswagen, Chinese ventures has committed to invest $17.5 billion in electric vehicles by 2025. Hence the rising demand for electric vehicles globally hamper the automotive crankshaft market size in the forecast period 2021-2026.
